Leading Australian edtech company Edalex has partnered with Queensland’s largest and most experienced Vocational Education and Training (VET) provider, TAFE Queensland, and is offering people an exciting range of micro-credentials designed to deliver industry and skills-aligned training to fill skills gaps in the areas of new technologies, digital and enterprise skills.

To enable the implementation of these innovative micro-credentials, TAFE Queensland is using Edalex’s Credentialate platform to manage their micro-credential workflow at scale. Credentialate issues both a digital badge (via Badgr Pro) as well as a personalised evidence record for learners that showcases their individual skills and competencies.

TAFE Queensland’s structured and thoughtful approach to micro-credentials seeks to respond in real time to fill skills gaps and elevate the importance of transferable enterprise skills. The micro-credentials framework was informed by research from the Foundation for Young Australians and aligned to both the Australian Government Core Skills Framework and the recommendations from the Review of the Australian Qualifications Framework Final Report 2019.

“Our micro-credentials are developed with industry in mind to meet their specific needs, ensuring they will be recognised by current and future employers,” said TAFE Queensland Chief Academic Officer Jo Pyne. “The framework we have created is focused on building an agile and adaptable workforce for employers with flexible training options available for skill acquisition. Credentialate has enabled us to take an industry-centric approach, whilst also providing our learners with a key tool to enhance their employability,” she said.

With the ongoing rapid rates of change being experienced in many workplaces around the world, both due to the COVID-19 pandemic and general technological advances, these micro-credentials aim to not only provide employers with access to relevant and quick professional development tools to future-proof their workforces, but they will also benefit people who might be looking to progress their career or change careers entirely in order to future-proof themselves.

“As a long-term client of Edalex, TAFE Queensland has been the ideal partner to advance evidence-based digital credentials in the vocational sector,” said Dan McFadyen, Managing Director, Edalex. “TAFE Queensland’s micro-credential framework supports their vision to recognise personalised learner achievement of in-demand workplace skills, at scale using Credentialate.”
